My first Craft Booth

Today I had my first ever craft booth. It wasn't my first booth at a craft type fair because I've had many Pampered Chef booths in the past 8 1/2 years. However, it was my first time to sell homemade items. My friend's neighborhood was having a Harvest Festival. They invite vendors to set up tables and have a moon bounce & more for the kids. It was a rather slow event for sales. Okay, it was REALLY slow for sales. I spent more putting gas in the van than I earned today. Most of that was selling Pampered Chef items at a deep discount. Still, it was a good "dry run" at being a craft fair salesperson. Plus, it was a beautiful day & I got to spend time with my friend whom I'd not seen for a long time.

Here is what my table looked like to start. I added a few items as I finished them during the 3 hours we were there.

If you would like to see closer up what I was selling you can go to my Splitcoast Stampers Gallery HERE.

Aw, bummer on not having good sales. Glad you had some friend time and a dry run for your successful craft fair!
